Poor Betty Suarez.
ABC is to end Ugly Betty with the current fourth season.
A statement declares: “We’ve mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty’s final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion. We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell.”
The future for the show has been in peril some time, but at least notice gives the show the chance to turn Betty from the ugly duckling to a princess -a plot we’ve all expected.
ABC shifted the dramedy around its schedule, but it hasn’t managed to perform.
Even in Australia the show was a ratings saviour, leading Seven’s “Beautiful Sunday” line-up. But after two seasons it was struggling, moved to summer and taken off air. It has currently been screened on 7TWO.
14 episodes of S4 have aired in the US.
